|Kentucky Lake Outdoor Guide- Fishing, Hunting and everything outdoors......|
Paris Landing is located near two of Tennessee's most prolific
reservoirs. Kentucky and Barkley lakes offer anglers abundant acreage
where shorelines with sloping gravel banks seem to reach to infinity.
Kentucky Lake is known by many as the
"crappie capitol of the world", but if it's the king then Lake
Barkley must be the queen, as it also offers excellent crappie
fishing. These tasty fish can provide some true fishing action. Spring
and fall are the best time to fill a stringer.
Catfishing is also a prime pastime for local anglers. Kentucky Lake in particular is known for excellent catfishing, especially during the summer months. The threee species of Catfish include Channel, Blue and Flathead.
White bass can provide a real thrill when surface feeding in the dog days of summer when nothing else seems to be biting. The lure of choice being anything small and white or shiny. When found chasing shad to the surface they work into a literal feeding frenzy and will bite almost anything offered at times, including a bare hook.
Other species include bream, sauger and an
occasional hybrid or striper.
